Thread: installation lenny daily hangs sometimes

  1. installation lenny daily hangs sometimes

    hello,

    i'm trying the daily build of the lenny installer and it *sometimes*
    hangs when partitioning. i test it with (i think) daily build
    downloaded two days ago and also with daily build downloaded some
    minutes ago.

    the installer process hangs but the machine is usable (i can use the
    alt+f2 shell to install openssh-client udebs or alt+f4 to see the
    debug messages)

    note that the partitions are already present. i just select /dev/hda5
    to install debian there with ext6

    in the same machine i've installed successfully d-i rc2 version
    different times (is a test machine and it is reinstalled near
    continuously).

    i attach /var/log/{partman,syslog}. don't know if you need more info...

    tia.

    i've done some more tests with today's daily build.

    the disk /dev/hda is previously partitioned and installation goes to /dev/hda5.

    i choose manual partitioning. then i select partition /dev/hda5. then
    select ext2 as filesystem and then installer hangs if i change "save
    partition data" to "format partition". but if before choosing what to
    do with the data i select the mount point ("/") and after that i
    select to format the partition the installer continues without
    problem.

    since i'm doing the installation in catalan and not in english, note
    that the messages translated back to english may only resemble the
    original ones.
